Healthy Woman Clinic

Every 3 years from the age of 25 you will automatically be reminded that your smear is due and asked to contact the Health Centre for an appointment.  Ladies from the age 50 to 64 years and 364 days will be invited for screening every 5 years  The clinics are performed by a nurse or a female doctor who will offer general health advice at the same time.


Cervical screening saves around 5000 lives per year and prevents 8 out of 10 cervical cancers from developing. 

Any symptoms outwith normal screening should be reported to your GP
